Welcome to


The Coaching Nest is here to help you navigate the challenges of maternity leave and returning to work. Founded by experienced life and career coach Hannah Short, we can give you the support, guidance, resources and inspiration you need on this next stage of your journey.


How we can help you

Individual Life & Career Coaching
Parental Transition Coaching
Corporate Maternity Leave Support

For some, returning to work after maternity leave isn’t a choice, it’s a necessity. For others, there is more freedom and time to decide the future path of your career. But one thing is true for every mum – the end of your maternity leave can be a time of real anxiety and uncertainty, when the best route forward isn’t always clear.

No matter what your situation, it’s important to remember that you always have options. Working with a maternity coach can help you to know what these options are. Perhaps you want to move to a different job at a new company. Or maybe you’re going back to the same role in the same team, but you know you’re now a different person. How do you approach discussions with your employer about your return? How do you manage your work-life balance? 

And it's not just about returning to work. Going on maternity leave for the first time can feel like a step into the unknown and you may have a lot of questions. A maternity coach can help you to face these concerns, find answers and put you back in control.

Victoria D., Teacher

"I was feeling really anxious about returning to work after a year off with my first baby. After my first session with Hannah from The Coaching Nest, I already felt like I was more in control of my career and choices and it reminded me of what I loved about my job, how I was valued and ways I could manage the transition. Hannah was excellent at pinpointing my worries and concerns and helping me come up with clear actions and solutions. Thank you!"
